Product Details

Bernie Mittens from the Vermont Mitten Co.

Designed by our favorite teacher, Jen Ellis, these mittens are warm, cozy and help the environment! Made with 100% upcycled wool sweaters, each one is carefully crafted to have a unique pattern and color story, so no two pairs are ever alike. Lined with super soft fleece, they will keep your hands warm on the coldest of days (even during long Inaugurations, just ask Bernie!). One size. Handcrafted in Shelburne, Vermont.
Every set of mittens is backed by our Love-It Guarantee! Mittens may be exchanged for a gift certificate or returned up to 60 days after the purchase date.

The Vermont Mitten Company

Founded in 2021 to help Jen Ellis make her now famous Bernie Mittens, this small company located in Shelburne, Vermont set out with a big goal: Make enough mittens for anyone who wants them! After collecting supplies from various partners such as Vermont's own Casella Recycling, and many training sessions with Jen, we're excited to finally get these on to your hands.

How They're Made

Each mitten is made with parts from several different sweaters and lined with oh so cozy fleece. Our team of designers carefully select colors and patterns to make each pair special, unique and different so no two pairs are ever the same.

Giving Back

Not only do these mittens help the environment by keeping retired clothing out of landfills, each pair also supports Make-A-Wish Vermont, which helps grant life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.

The Bernie Mittens

Jen's world changed after Joe Biden's Presidential Inauguration in January of 2021 due our Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders. He was wearing a pair of mittens Jen had made for him years before. Suddenly, her mittens were viral, and she was getting more requests than she could handle. And that's when Vermont Teddy Bear lent a helping hand and created The Vermont Mitten Company.
